Unusual ideas of shoe cabinets in the hallway are practical things that should be in any house or apartment.
Models come in a wide range of variations, including open and closed, big and little, and plastic and natural material. These cabinets are typically used to keep festive shoes that you don’t use often or shoes that you don’t use this season. The dirt in the corridor is reduced, there is a sense of comfort and order, and it is sometimes much more practical to store everyday shoes on a shelf rather than just on the floor.
It is wise to weigh the pros and downsides of various shoe cabinet models before making a purchase.

Most shoe racks are not as functional as many people would like. Everything gets mixed up in them, and you can’t figure out what to wear for a planned lunch or dinner.

Brightly colored boxes with clear walls are ideal for storing seasonal shoes because you can always see what’s inside, making it easier to find what you’re looking for.

Shoe cabinets made of treated wood
To make a good impression, such furniture should not be glossy or excessively shiny. Simple lines and excellent natural wood shades are also desirable.
Here’s an excellent example. Arredokit (the same company as the one mentioned above) furniture collection with wooden processed cabinets that will hide your fashionable stylish pairs of shoes.
A spacious bench cabinet
A spacious bench cabinet with a shoe rack is a practical option for shoes or boots that you don’t wear frequently. A wardrobe with a seat is popular as both a primary and secondary shoe storage solution.
It is difficult to organize shelves inside the bench in order to get shoes out of there every day, but for long-term storage, this is a very convenient option that does not take up extra space. You can also get an ottoman cabinet, which is even smaller. It is worthwhile to proceed based on the location of the hallway and the number of your shoes.
Interesting design solutions will allow you to not only buy a closet for storing boots and shoes but also to change the look of the hallway’s interior. The design of the shoe box should be determined by the current state of your apartment. Consider the following design alternatives:
Carved wooden shoe cabinets can look great in a continental, country, or modern setting. Often, you can find a variety of wooden shoe boxes decorated with relief ornaments in stores. Simultaneously, you can now find more interesting models on which entire paintings, realistic images of animals, or plants will be cut out. This style is usually ideal for a hallway.
In many modern interiors, aged retro-style shoes can look very original. There are various technologies and coatings available to give new models a vintage appearance. This is typically done on wooden products, but leather and textile models with similar designs are also available.
To choose a shoe cabinet, use the following tips:
- If you choose a wooden cabinet, make sure that it is completely smooth both inside and out – it can be sanded or varnished. Splinters can damage your shoes if they remain inside the closet.
- When selecting painted products, make sure the paint is evenly applied both inside and outside.
- When selecting plastic models, take special care to ensure that the cabinet’s walls are strong enough and that the plastic does not smell.
- Models that are fastened with nails rather than glue will always last longer.
- When selecting a textile product, ensure that the seams are smooth and strong.
How to place it?
Lockers are typically purchased for more compact shoe storage – you can store boots, slippers, and shoes in them, which previously took up a lot of space in the house. It is critical to place the cabinet correctly in the hallway or any other room so that it is truly functional and does not take up extra space.
Large cabinets are typically installed along a side wall. This allows you to free up as much space as possible while also organically fitting the cabinet into the environment. It is preferable if the cabinet can be attached to a corner on one side. On the other hand, to maximize the use of all available space, you can attach a pair of hanging shelves to it or place an ottoman next to it.
